9:12 am
we're going to get rained on this weekend. it looks like we're going to dodge danny boy but it could still pack a strong punch before hurricane season is over in november. no one wants to see a repeat of isabel. as abc 2 news linda so tells us, if it happens, people can take a lesson from the national
9:13 am
aquarium. >> reporter: they are some of the most memorable pictures from rur cane isabel, a wham being rescued from her fells point home. shops in annapolis flooded out, parking meters bobbing in the high water and the inner harbor underwater. gene taylor remembers it well. >> september 19, 2003. >> reporter: it was the first time he had to put his emergency plan into action on such a large scale. >> waves literally rolling down through the peer 4 and pier 3 on to pratt street. you can boogie board on to pratt street at 4:00 in the morning. >> reporter: part of it involved the floodgates, a total of 38 gates put up to keep the water from isabel out. >> we didn't have the floodgates, we probably would have sustained more damage.
9:14 am
>> reporter: since then, they haven't had to use the gates but they perform a test run every year to make sure they are still in good working order. the aquarium has more than 16,000 animals so it's crucial to have an emergency action plan in place. that way both the people and animals will be safe in an emergency. the aquarium unlike their neighbors was up quickly after the emergency was over. it benefits them and the city. >> it's important for the workers, the economy, and the terrorists to come -- for the tourists that come through the city. it's beneficial all around. >> we have a special flood cabinet now. we learned from the past to have it ready. >> reporter: shalling ready will pay off if -- being ready will certainly pay off if the unexpected hits. linda so, abc 2 news.
9:15 am
>> you just saw gene taylor in linda's story. i'm imagining what your house looks like a fortress? >> my family said -- we wasn't at the time movies and my dad who is 7 years old said dad, the emergency exit's over there. >> so you trained him well. >> we try. >> you said earlier that your motto is always having a plan. >> yeah, whether it's at home or the national aquarium in baltimore. it takes a team effort. there's three bullet points to have. be prepared, have a plan, and stay informed. >> and that's always the case no matter what? >> exactly. that's why we're successful at the national aquarium in baltimore. y2k had the vision in '97 and '98 that we had to have a good plan and working with dave and our senior director, we put together a core team to focus on y2k but at the same time, laid the foundation for a good
9:16 am
disaster plan. and this is just the foundation of the disaster plan. >> which i think is so funny because you would expect it to be this big, but it seems like it would be something that people would actually read. >> exactly. i mean, it's a small plan but we want to be self-sufficient. we don't want to put the call out to the city, to the ems, to the fire, to the police. we want to provide a safe and healthy work place at the aquarium during a disaster, and at the same time, we want the city to be focused on savings, the hospital and residents within baltimore city. not getting the aquarium that we need a rescue. >> when a storm hits, you think about the homeowner and businesses. i don't think people really take something as significant as one of our city's great treasures, which is the aquarium into account. so what would you want people to know, i guess, about when it comes to an emergency about why it's so important to protect the aquarium and have a plan? i think most people think it's
9:17 am
a big building, it's safe. >> yeah, right. we have two buildings. the main aquarium on pier 3 and marine mammal on pier 4. the concern is when we get a storm surge like that, being on piers, our buildings turn into islands. we need the proper supplies and equipment there because you know, they could be islands maybe for 12 hours, 14 hours, maybe three hours. so we need to have a plan with the right supplies. that's what's the great part about the aquarium. we're the best animals in the world and best betting. we have the best staff. our staff has passion for the animal and institution. part of our mission statement is transforming the experience. the national aquarium inspires people to enjoy and respect and also protect the aquatic world. we live and breathe that as staff members from our facilities team, security team, i.t., and they do have internal plans that we do a great job so we can open up.
9:18 am
isabel hit on a friday and saturday. on sunday, we opened to the public. at the time, mayor o'mally visited with his children. when we heard he was coming, we thought he was coming to givous i pat on the back. he was coming to enjoy because he went through 48 hours. good stress being the leader for the city. >> what i really liked is you said preparing for that, it doesn't put a strain on the city and state if you can have a plan. so thank you for coming in. i hope you'll come back because i'm sure you learn every time something like this happens how to deal with it in new ways. >> my pleasure. keep that danny out there in the atlantic. >> that leads to us justin. you are a weather watcher for him, too? >> oh, yes. >> he is a hard core weather net. >> you have to stay informed. >> yes. >> gene is to prepared that on
9:19 am
the golf course, he yells forewhen he's putting and sometimes it's called for. we've got fresh lightning strikes the last 20 mines. we're lighting up about a dozen lightning strikes here. this band extends up towards freedom and shrewsbury. the frontal boundary up to the northwestern front with watches and washings posted up there. we have the front we've been watching through the 95 stretch from har to baltimore county. flood watch all day, hartford, baltimore, carroll, howard. we may extend this, but this is part of the system that is through tropical moisture. it lit up like a smastry. we notice a little more mugginess and humidity to the air. check the reason why. we'll build this back wider. as we have this storm system
9:20 am
building strength across the gulf coast it's not tropical. it is a mid and upper level system and it looks taking in the tropical moisture and pumping all the way up to the north. we have a frontal boundary back to the west. all of the winds are going to be combining for all of the moisture all the way. we doubled everything up here. this is danny. danny is actually weakening and will be offshore with high swells. i think the southern system brings us more rain for a few more days and spreads it out. this is a worse setup than if danny was closer to us. more storms likely to continue tonight. a chance of locally heavy rain will continue until we can get the western cold front through to sweep it out. we're near 80 tomorrow. as we head into next week, we'll stay in the 70s. you can get this online at abc2news.com. it is 9:20. back to you.

9:40 am
most of us love hanging out in the backyard. the weather will be nice for a while, so why not turn your backyard into a natural oasis. you can have wildlife behind your house. rob is the director of education. thanks for coming in. >> yes. >> thanks for coming in. >> most people have a lot of grass and it's not interesting and not doing much for wildlife. simple things you can plant that are not that difficult that will attract all sorts of things and make it more interesting interesting when you go out. >> in my yard, it's a little piece at a time and you can add from year to year if you want to add more things. >> let's get started. >> one of the things we suggest is you use more native plants. there are all sorts of plants
9:41 am
you can buy. ones that are native to maryland are ones that have the most benefit for wildlife. so wild flowers, trees, shrubs would be great. they provide food and other things as well. >> so for example, one of my favorites. this is butterfly weed. it's nice flowers there. it's a perennial so you don't have to replant it. butterflies and other insects eat the nectar. and the monarch butterfly this year they are getting ready to fly down to mexico. every fall they fly down to mexico but lay their eggs on the leaves so the caterpillars are there. so that's interesting to see what sort of bugs you find on the wild flowers. >> that's spectacular, too. >> and the birds will come and they eat the bugs that are there so it's like a whole ecosystem going on. this is if you have sun if it's a shadier place. you can plant ferns or early
9:42 am
spring wild flowers grown in the woods before the leaves come out. after that, if you have ferns like this, they take over and provide nice ground cover as well. >> i think these always look pretty and green. the black-eyed suesson good. when it goes to seed, you lose them if you don't cut them off. also a perennial, blooms later in the summer. so things are blooming all year long. that's great as well. >> this is one of my favorites, which is the birdhouse. >> you can put up a birdhouse just this size of a typical blue bird sized house. you might get wrens, and they'll raise a family in there. so you can watch and see what's happening. that's another nice reason to add them to your yard and see
9:43 am
what's going on. everything likes water so if you can put up the small bird bath, that's another tip that's easy to do. not much maintenance. >> it's not too late to do those things, right? >> you can put it up now. in february, the birds are looking for nesting sites. >> real quickly, you have something going on? >> i mentioned all of the native plants. sometimes it's hard to find native plants. from 9:00 to 4:00, we have native plants in the seminar. you can register for the seminar and take courses and workshops. or you can come out thought the day and buy plants. so the 13 vendors there with hundreds of plants just in time for the fall season. so if you are interested in coming out, you can get more information at www.explorenature.org or 443- 738-9200. >> if you missed it, we'll put it on our web site. >> are you hungry?
9:44 am
>> yes. >> all right. we'll head over and get some crepes. that's why jamie is right now. [speaking foreign language .] cafe deparis is next. eric will play guitar and we are gonna make some crepes next.
